This is the full 12-13-10 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
One unique aspect of our coverage of worker’s issues over the past year here on Labor Express Radio has been the number of stories we have aired regarding environmental issues in working class communities. As we approach the end of 2010, and as world leaders discuss climate change policy in Cancun at COP 16, we will air today one more episode focused on this issue.
First, we will hear from one of Chicago’s oldest and most important environmental justice organizations, LVEJO or the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization. They we will talk about their critique of the negotiations in Cancun and of some of the work they are currently engaged in here in Chicago.
And later in the program we will hear from rail yard workers, members of Teamsters Local 705, who are worried about the effects of rail yard pollution on their members and the working class communities that surround the yards.
